Thursday 26th March

Good morning from Miss Eggby! Here are today's Daily Five:


1. The Daily Five - Maths

Today I would like you to complete a similar task to yesterday. Find 2 objects and measure them, instead of adding them, today I would like you to subtract them which will allow you to find the difference between them. Again, if you want to make it easier for yourself, round them to the nearest cm and subtract the smallest one from the bigger one (e.g. 13cm - 4cm). If you want a challenge, measure in cm and mm (e.g. 5cm and 3mm - 2cm and 1mm) and subtract them. Please complete 5 of these.


Remember, when you are subtracting, start with the biggest number!



2. The Daily Five - Literacy

Remind yourself of our text 'Theseus and the Minotaur' (in your work books). Pretend you are one of the characters. You could be Theseus, King Minos, the Minotaur, Princess Ariadne or even one of the children in the story. Write a diary describing how you felt at a certain point in the story (you can choose which part you want to focus on). Remember, YOU ARE THE CHARACTER! So you will need to use "I" and not "him/her". For example, if you were King Theseus you might write in your diary, "I am feeling scared, I am going as the 7th boy on the boat. But I'm also feeling mighty brave! I WILL kill the Minotaur and save us!". You need to include what you as the character did, how you felt and what you are about to do.



3. The Daily Five - Outside Time

Go outside, draw all of the different types of nature you see. As we have been focusing on plants in science, drawing these would be a good starting point. If you run out of plants to draw, you could draw some trees, leaves or even bugs you see. 



4. The Daily Five - Project

For the project today you have a choice depending on what you have available. For your project, you could make your labyrinth using any resources you want! This could be simply just paper and sellotape, cardboard, or you could even use things around your house (for example pillows) to make a real life labyrinth and take a photo of it! If you are not able to make a labyrinth at all, you could draw it using paint on the computer, or you could draw it on paper again but without the labels and draw in your monster/magical creature and your hero and villain entering.



5. The Daily Five - Reading

Read more on Oxford Reading Owl or your own book, write down what you read onto your reading log.
